  • Good to visit on foot. Especially the skyline is spectacular; not very special. This you should not as a goal of your walk, rather as connection between the shopping street and the Old Town.

  • The Pudong promenade should not be left out definitely during a visit to Shanghai. Both during the day and in the evenings you can enjoy great views of the city or the skyline here. The camera should definitely not be missed here. The length of the promenade is also a longer walk. Entrance fees or costs are not incurred for this attraction.
